Choose Swansea as your study location in the UK and you will experience both a great university city and one of the UK's most beautiful coastlines.
Swansea is a safe and friendly university city surrounded by beautiful countryside, sitting in a scenic natural harbour in the 5-mile long Swansea Bay. It has a large student population, which gives it a young and vibrant atmosphere and makes it a perfect place to study. You will feel at home straight away!
Interesting museums, a bustling nightlife and great sporting venues and events - life in Swansea has a lot to offer. No wonder the city is so popular with local and international students, who are looking for an exciting place to live with a low cost of living.
If you are more interested in spending time outdoors, you don't have to look far. The Gower Peninsula with its award-winning coves, bays and beaches is right on Swansea's doorstep. Whether you are looking for peaceful and relaxing surroundings, or more adventurous activities such as rock- climbing and horse-riding, or white water-rafting and quad-biking, you will find it on the Gower.
Located on the South-West coast of Wales, Swansea is linked to the rest of the UK by motorway and rail. Cardiff airport is just under an hour away, and has direct connections to 14 European countries as well as Africa and the Caribbean. Swansea is within easy reach of many places of interest such as the Brecon Beacons National Park, Bath and Oxford, and London is only three hours away by train.
